SONY PSP PREVIEW: METAL GEAR AC!D

Konami is jumping right on the bandwagon with Sony's new PSP handheld system. It's no surprise since Konami and Sony have always had a decent working relationship. The real surprise maybe the game itself. Unlike the other Metal Gear games this on will be a turn based / card game. (Say What?) You will move Snake through each mission a few steps at a time and then select cards to use the cards act as Snakes weapons and other gadgets in the game. A new twist on the series for sure it may seem odd but so far the screen shots look great and the game just may offer a new twist in the long series.

According to Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series, action/stealth games such as the MGS series require precise control and he felt the PSP wasn't going to be able to deliver on that experience. Hence the jarring alteration to the game you were probably expecting. Don't feel like you're alone in your despair. We're disappointed too.

As of right now we really do not have more info than the turn base style that the game will feature. We do know you will be able to adjust the camera angles and zoom in and out to see what is or who is waiting for you nearby. When you take your turn you then will see what the enemy decides to do this will also feature some great action scenes. While the game is taking a new route on the overall game play style fans are sure to be in for some great action and surprises. Check out the newest screen shots and we will update the preview and try to add trailers of the game in action.
